” Pls ooh…If they say you sound igbotic, yorubatic, hausatic, or however you sound, pls be proud of it…you see those people who think you are illiterate when you sound like that…they are the real illiterate. There is nothing in their coconut head.”
I think he is right because I feel it is wrong for you to make gest of someone because of the way they express themselves. We must learn to encourage them to speak up rather than discouraging them.
When you laugh, be sure to laugh at what people do and not at their speech.
Nobody is perfect and nobody deserves to be perfect.
